EasyChair Preprint no. 2022

5 pagesDate: November 25, 2019


Tourism as a social phenomenon, can bring sweeping transformations in the host community. The introduction and development of tourism in the coastal village of Cavelossim sparked radical transformations in the livelihood of local population, with a shift from traditional occupations to tourism-related occupations. This paper is a qualitative ethnographic study, exploring the socio-historical transformations of the research area which came to the limelight of international tourism in the 1980s. It aims in investigating the ways in which tourism development has led local people to give up their traditional livelihood/occupations and become dependent on tourism related businesses like renting houses and shops, operating shacks, restaurants and taxis.
